JAN. 10: LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A Home Depot employee was shot on the job by two men, according to North Las Vegas police.

NLVPD Officer Alexander Cuevas said the shooting happened around 11 a.m. at the Home Depot in the 1200 block of Craig Road near Martin L. King Boulevard.

Arriving officers found a man suffering an apparent gunshot wound. The man was taken to University Medical Center, Cuevas said.

A Home Depot employee was shot on the job by two men, according to North Las Vegas police.

Police said two suspects entered the store and got into an altercation with an employee. During the altercation, the employee was shot once, Cuevas said.

The victim was a member of the store’s loss prevention team, according to his fiancé. Melissa Basso said she got word of what happened when the store manager called her.

“He was pepper sprayed and then shot in the side. The bullet just missed his spine, but didn’t his any organs,” she said.

Store customers said they were surprised by what happened.

“That this happened around here, I was shocked,” said Steve Stewart.

Gil Joseph who lives nearby added, “I’ve never felt threatened here.”

The suspects left in a newer silver Ford Taurus with unknown California license plates. Anyone with information is asked to call NLVPD at 702-633-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 to remain anonymous.

Yes, reality is racist to you leftist lemmings. Keep your head up your butt.

Trump! A stupid person's idea of a smart person. This has nothing to do with the topic but decided to throw it in anyway.

Nevermore

And you voted for a senile, pedophile and a wh*re with no brains. This has nothing to with the topic either.

beavis

You are a Qanon follower!? bahahahahaha bahahahahah

Who?

You should charge Trump rental fees for occupying you head room. You'll need the extra cash when the gubmint handouts dry up.

Why does this news website almost always show black criminals ? Just read about the white parents whose baby died from meth inhalation on 8 news, but not a peep about it on this website. But even when 5 news shows a story of a white person committing a crime. The usual cast of hate mongers have nothing to say.

jeezlouise

Because Blacks are criminals you i diot

AmericaFirst

Sorry it’s our fault. Shoplifting is perfectly legal in their home state of California.

beavis

umm sure.

If all the great soul brothers and African-Americans don't stop leaning on Home Depot so much. our city could become a hardware store desert.

"Really? MLK should be a huge hint." Said yoozernaymes.

This is a result of DemocRats WAR on LAW AND ORDER- They are pushing for more and more murder funded by SOROS. Sisolak is a crooked hassa.

They are ALL at war with our society.

qwerty123

They are ALL PART of our society and have been since before the founding of our country.

Nevermore

And your point is.......

qwerty123

That they are an integral part of our society and not at war with it.

Nevermore

They are also at war with themselves. Look at Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Detroit. United we stand, divided we fall. At what point do we all stand together. I don't see it any time soon.

I normally don't agree with a lot of racists comments on this website. But I as a black man am truly disappointed with the stupid actions of my fellow bruthas. Every time I turn on the news my bruthas are involved in one hayness crime after another. Can't always blame the white man for your stupid ignorance. Not saying all, but some of my bruthas need to sent away from society forever. Enough is enough

Silvermane

"Can't always blame the white man for your stupid ignorance."

The white man isn't to blame for any of this violence & crimes. Each man, black, white, whatever, is responsible for his own actions and/or ignorance...and to blame one race for another race's violence & crimes is simply making excuses and avoiding reality & personal responsibility.

Nevermore

This is your New America.

beavis

you need a holiday in Cambodia.

Nevermore

You need one in Venezuela, but don't forget the Bud Lite.

beavis

"Venezuela". Four syllables! Your sixth grade diploma is right around the corner!

qwerty123

Identical to the old America? There is nothing shocking or new about this story.

Nevermore

Do you feel safer now than twenty or thirty years ago? I think not. Do you walk to your car without looking at everyone and seeing where they are? Do you aware who's around you when you go shopping in a mall? I'm sure most of us like to think that nothing bad will happen to us. But this isn't Disneyland anymore.

qwerty123

Absolutely safer than 20 to 30 years ago. I think you might be looking at the 90s through rose colored glasses. Crime was at an all time high in our city. Also we have far safer casinos today. I remember shooting on the strip being much more common and the tragedy of the MGM fire. Our city is not perfect, but it's never been.

Nevermore

We have a open border with cartel gangs coming in. Sure we're a lot safer. Walking the strip late at night, people have been beaten up. And , of course, there's the 57 people that were murdered at a concert. But sure we are a lot safer./sarc

Nevermore

I don't remember people being able to shoplift with impunity twenty years ago. Who knows. Maybe they thought the Louis Vutton purses were in aisle 6.

qwerty123

They were, it was a major problem. I worked security and one the key issues we had was the problem of shoplifting not being addressed. It's a crime that affects customers through higher prices and in effect is stealing from everyone. I've long thought we have needed to crack down on it. The only difference today is more cameras and social media so there is more awareness of it.

Rooster

Maybe. I see it as the old America now being emboldened by the democrat lawlessness.

beavis

I would disagree with you but your comment doesn't make a bit of sense. May I suggest a mental cognitive status test.

Dank Fatty

Mmmmmhhhhhh!

fluffy_kitten

They seem like nice and polite gentlemen who contribute to society and are totally employable. They CLEARLY didn't do nuffin wrongz.

beavis

"nuffin wrongz"? You hurt my brain.

Ledesma 99

Negative behavior like this is usually just a temporary way to make ends meet. Just until some liberal comes along and discovers them as rappers.

beavis

You need to slow down on the Tucker Carlson Kool-Aid. It will give you the runs.
